What If They Staged A Cuba Uprising And Nobody Came?

“The US staging a domestic uprising in Cuba and no one showing up for it reminds me of that old’saying ‘What if they had a war, and nobody came?’ … So much of what the US empire used to do covertly through the CIA it now just does openly. Says a lot about how much more effective its narrative control has gotten over the years. The CIA used to infiltrate the media, now spooks openly do punditry for mainstream news outlets. The CIA used to oust governments covertly, now the NED openly funds subversion. The CIA used to stage uprisings, now the empire just says HEY WE’RE GONNA START SOME PROTESTS IN CUBA! … If anti-government protests were proportionate to a government’s actual malfeasance, Washington DC would be completely inoperable 365 days a year because its streets would be continuously packed with millions of demonstrators.” (11/18/21)
